Now, why don't they show some imagination and guts and screen the Sunshine Daydream movie, which is all over the web. Instead we get the tried and true and boring Alpine show we have all heard, okay the Box of Rain - Foolish Heart is nice and the Dew, but at 18 bucks how about something rare and unseen that might show some effort by folks. The video output is laughable. Where is the Tivoli TV Show? I mean, they just mastered the whole tour.

I'm looking forward to it, maybe mostly because I was at the show, had a really really fun time, and I'm going to appreciate the opportunity to *see* the whole thing again for the first time, which is a totally different experience than listening to a recording.

two reasons imo

1) Quality - Even if they had the rights to the masters I'm not sure the quality is good enough in their opinion for the big screen. Even though us fans would take a little less quality to see the band in it's best years

2) Call it long term memory loss or the fact that the band is closer to what they were doing than our interpretation but I think there is a strong consensus - at least what has been directly said by Bob and Phil that they regard 89-90 as some of their best work. Agree or not I think they feel that

As far as I know there isnt a whole lot of footage of the band in their prime. What I want to know is why not release more out takes from the Dead movie. That's going to be the best there is imo

Wrong show. They're screening 7/18/89, which is probably the weakest of that Alpine run.

The Sunshine Daydream Video is one of the easiest vids to get online. The Tivolis is available as well but a bit more difficult to find.
I doubt Sunshine Daydream will be officially released because of various reasons the band has stated over the years.
The Kesey's traded out a near perfect version of the Creamery Show a few years ago. It is not the complete show.

This is true. It would be better if they played 7-19 which is about as good as any 80s show out there.

The minglewood and FOTD, sugar > scarlet are pretty killer. I dont think i'll be making it tho, its a bit of a drive and last year disappointed me greatly due to low volume, i fear it will be the same again.

how could you possibly call 7-19-89 a boring show?

I'm with ya on rather seeing sunshine daydream and wishing that the people at dead.net would go for something more rare (early stuff) but 7-19 is fucking amazing, and the BOR > foolish is probably the weakest part of the show, that deal? dear lord.

They know their market share when it comes to this stuff. '89 - '90 were POPULAR years. Lots of big venues packed to the gills.

Also, that is when they started filming the shows to project up on the big screens for the way back folks to enjoy - so they have high quality video available.

I think the freaky "polecat guy" is keeping Sunshine Daydream out of the theaters...
